Benefits of Investing in New Business Equipment

Upgrading or investing in new equipment can help your business grow and become more profitable. You may need to invest in more modern technology, machinery, or vehicles to lead in your market.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, existing levels of business investment have fallen, with a reduction of 11.6% between 2019 to 2020. This has slowed productivity growth significantly.

The UK Government has recognised this and now offers enhanced first year Capital Allowances of 130% to encourage businesses to invest now. As a result, this has the potential to boost economic growth and balance the business cycle.

There are various advantages to investing in new business equipment. This aids in the establishment of a successful business.
